After working again as a nurse for only 5 months, I injured my knee and am unable to return to any physically demanding job. I thank God for my jewelry-making passion and am now taking it to a new dimension, by selling on Etsy!
I remarried a year ago... my high school sweetheart whom I had not had any contact with for 40 years! Two of my 4 children also married last year. I made all the jewelry, hairpieces and flowers and was again reminded of how much I love making others happy with beading! I pray you also will love my jewelry!
